Obama - I am mighty impressed
He talked really well, cracked jokes at times, smiled a lot, acknowledged mistakes, challenged detractors and threatened to use his veto powers. Boy, he was persuasive in his vocal theatrics in spite of the long talk!!!
If only Obama and his folks walk the talk, but that is another thing. :-)
Meanwhile thinking why we do not have anything like that in India. All the Republic Day/Independence Day speeches by our politicians are so drab and monotonous with no crackle or energy. The Governor's address to the Chief Minister of his state should not contain any negative comment about the Government even if it was mired in controversy. So much so for democracy.
